Enter the border zones of Marchland, a full-length dance where bodies and images vie for contested territory. Marchland refers to a border region – the threshold between two places. Many different types of physical or psychological boundaries are invoked in the piece – barriers between bodies, actions between groups, and constructions built to delineate these boundaries. Marchland was spurred by collaborator Fraser Taylor's animation ("Crevice") and premiered at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in 2010. Featuring dancers Philip Elson, Sarah Gonsiorowski, Christina Gonzalez-Gillett, Damon Green, Matthew McMunn, Cara Sabin, Hannah Santistevan and Chicago musicians Tim Daisy with Phil Sudderberg (June 21-23) and Alex Inglizian (June 28-30).
